sandy, climate change. a largely inactive hurricane season prior, climate change. the new england patriots not making it to the super bowl, climate change. you can believe this. just believe this, climate change. like the environmental gift that keeps giving, ever since they ditched term global warming, environmentalists have a label to pretty much fits everything. it would be funny, if they would not want to spend the money to change anything that affects the weather. now leaving asidecall ron, focus on this he has a big backer in washington. and climate change crusade that will bypass congress. this is about to get expensive. and doesn't mark know it for years he tried to tell a mainstream media, that won't listen that the widespread view climate change is man-made. and more than a thousand scientists argue it is wrong. and now that environmentalist bashing crusader, warns, spending trillions of dollars addressing that imaginary problem is more than wrong, it will be pricey, mark. i'm afraid of that post, inaugural automatic pilot we have for global addressing climbal at change

more than two dozen children and adults were killed in sandy hook school, one school district is making a wholesale change in the type of locks currently used to keep their classrooms secure. we have the report now from stanley middle school in lafayette. >> by the end of the month, classroom doors in lafayette school district will have new handle that's lock from the inside with a push of the but ro on. >> there is a new lock with a push button device so we can have instant lock up for classrooms and release when we need to get out. >> the move in the wake of the deadly camp yaij at sandy hook school where a young man went from classroom to classroom, killing 26 first graders teachers and administrator autos we want to do what we can to keep our kids safe. and to signal to the staff that we need to do our part. >> new handles will replace the current types. the cost of the change is about $60,000. parents seem to think it's a common sense approach to beefing up security on the campus. >> i guess this makes sense. >> i think that would be very sad for stud dwronts lose what they have to
who still aren't back in their homes three months after superstorm sandy. elaine quijano has more on that. >> reporter: we found anthony gambino inside a tent run by volunteers on staten island. the temperature outside was in the 20s. when you felt that cold, what went through your mind? >> find warmth and find it fast, and here it was. >> reporter: gambino has been sleeping here off and on since sandy severely damaged his home. the former mechanic lives on disability. this is how you sleep? >> fine, right here. folding chair here, got the t.v., got the heat, it's all good. >> reporter: one of the volunteers is tim chin. these are your supplies? >> these are the supplies that we have. >> reporter: he's given out 70 space heaters in the last couple of days. >> it's been getting really, really, really crazy with the heaters. people are freezing. they're cold, and we're trying our best to meet the needs of the community which is keeping them warm for the next few days as it gets colder and colder. >> next week, they're talking about getting warmer. but let's face it, we're going into
, sandy levin. interestingly enough, sandy and i actually share act. sometimes you hear the term, reagan democrats. it was from our county. you have two. you have two very divergent beliefs coming out of a county. but one thing that is a very commonality of think of a county like mccomb, is we have budgets. we pass budgets on time. we balance them. we just think you should have a budget. interestingly enough, just before i came here, before we had our vote series, i was doing something i call congress in the classroom where i was going to call it skipe, but it's the new technology as uvo. i talk to all these kids in my district, my part of the county, about things that are going on in congress. i was telling them about this particular piece of legislation that was going to come before the congress tomorrow and tell them that the senate had actually not passed a budget in almost four years. they said, how could that be? isn't there anything you can do to force that? i said, we're going to try tomorrow and it's unfortunate it has to come to that. whatever kind of budget the senate would pa
sandy, of tropical storm sandy. they wanted to defend their own territory in terms of politics, but i didn't see anything particularly conspiratorial in any of that. >> no, they're actually trying to save themselves. they've got a bunch of people from very safe districts, and john is right, it would be very hard for democrats to take back the house until after 2020 because all those districts are gerrymandered, and, you know, if you can't take back the house, you certainly can't annihilate the republicans. it was a kind of loopy expression, and i think if john was being honest, he'd say he wouldn't have advised the speaker to say it. >> is victimhood now a republican meme? now republicans are all victims too? i know the democrats are sometimes truly victims, but are you selling the fact, hey, we're getting beat up by these bullies. is this the new thing, complaining, crying? do you think it works politically? >> i think the president's speech on monday did a wonderful thing for republicans. it got them united and fired up. he said nothing that anybody in any red states would say he's
capacity ammunition clips in the wake of the sandy hook school shootings. her bill is also cosponsored by both of connecticut's senators. >> newtown changed things. >> we believe in our right to defend ourselves and our families with semi-automatic firearms technology. >> vice president joe biden continues his search for ways to curb gun violence. he is heading to virginia tomorrow. he will hold a rally to promote gun control and will hold online google forum chats to discuss the issue. >>> san mateo county will hold a gun buy-back event this saturday at the fairgrounds on delaware street. the county will offer $100 for handguns, shotguns and rifles. if you turn in an assault weapon you could earn up to $200. in recent months several bay area cities have held gun buy- back programs. this is oakland's successful event last december. >>> new this morning, british officials warning of an imminent threat against westerners in libya and telling all uk nationals to get out of benghazi immediately. meanwhile secretary of state hillary clinton got emotional
the campaign. those two factors drive this issue down, but something like hurricane sandy, that could be a wake-up call. >> and hurricane sandy cost a lot of money. now, it's tough with all the pork that went in the bills, but we got a $50 billion appropriation that just came to affected states. that cost a lot of money. so might it not, even if we're not really sure what a cut in emissions might do right now to the trajectory of the climate change that we've experienced, mite it not be worth trying to do something about things? whether through carbon monoxide emissio emissions, co2? >> i don't think so. no matter what we do, we're not going to have the impact unless the rest of the world goes along and we're going to drive up koss on people. coal fire plants. 19 just shut down in georgia. do people really want to do things like that nationwide when china, russia, india, brazil aren't going to do them? probably not. long-term, it's probably not going to have an impact. we've had extreme weather in the past. the 1950s had more extreme weather than now. unless people start seeing that it's confor
. president obama called for lawmakers to renew the ban after the massacre at sandy hook in newtown, connecticut. senator feinstein says the issue is also very personal for her. remember, she became mayor of san francisco in 1978 after a gunman shot and killed the mayor at city hall. >> once you have been through one of these episodes, once yous like, it isn't like the movies. it changes your view of weapons, i think. >> shepard: the assault weapons ban expired almost a decade ago and tonight a spokesman for the nra says there is no need to renew it because gun bans do not work. >>> shannon bream live in d.c what would this new bill do exactly. >> it would ban the sale, manufacture, transfer and importation of 157 specific guns, along with a broader group of other guns that would meet a new lower threshold for classifying a firearm as an assault weapon. there would be numerous bans on various high capacity magazines and beefed up background checks on the sale and transfer of all assault weapons. vice president joe biden said today assault weapons aren't necessary for personal prote
sandy hook never happens again. would i oppose that executive order or support it? >> we would certainly report supporting threats of violence but that's not what previous administrations have done and it is not what we fear he is going to do. the idea that your doctor would ask you if you have firearms in your house, as part of an examination of your health, is repugnant because you have a right under the second amendment to own firearms legitimately. if the president wants a doctor to report a threat of physical violence, a citizen should do that as well as a doctor. but if what they want doctors to do is what they urged doctors to do in the past which help them demonize firearms by asking their patients if they have guns and implying that owning a gun is a health problem, then we're opposed to it. bill: we'll bring you back. there is a lot more on the executive orders that we need to get to. we'll sort through them one by one. david keane, thank you for your time. >> anytime. bill: a lot of e-mails on this. a lot of tweets on this. hemmer@foxnews.com is the e-mail. on twitter @billhem
put it in the supplemental bill for sandy. and guess what? the house republicans stripped it out and didn't put it in their version of the sandy bill. so even today, after we know what happened, the republicans are still not willing to give her the resources to protect our diplomats abroad. >> senator, what was this hearing about today? was it about getting and finding solutions or something else? >> listen, to me, this was simply about politics, right, about two-thirds of the republicans that asked questions asked questions about a handful of tv appearances by susan rice. the fact is if republicans asked just a small percentage of the questions that they've been asking about these television appearances about the war in iraq, we wouldn't be talking about saving four lives, we would be talking about saving 4,000 lives. and so i'm glad she's being as transparent as she has been. but it's about time to focus on something bigger than this. >> senator, you have access to these intelligence materials. did you learn anything today? was there any new information that came out today? >>
"sandy" -- last october -- spent the night in tents with propane heaters. britain, the netherlands and germany are warning their citizens to get out of benghazi, libya. the alert today cited an the city. the alert today cited an imminent threat to westerners in the city. there were no specifics, and the u.s. embassy in libya said it had nothing pointing to threats against americans. the u.s. ambassador to libya -- and three other americans -- died last september when islamist militants attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi. north korea declared today it will conduct a third nuclear test, defying newly expanded u.n. sanctions. the announcement came two days after the u.n. security council condemned the north for a long-range rocket test last month. in response, the north's top governing body -- the national defense commission -- issued this statement, on state t.v. >> ( translated ): we do not deny that a variety of satellites and long-range rockets will be launched. one after another and a nuclear test of a higher level which will be carried out by it in the upcoming all-out acti
about the proposed laws. >>> also today, the group commissioned to investigate the sandy hook moose kerr nt-- mast meets for the first time. the sandy hook advisory commission will hear from experts who was involved in the aftermath of columbine and the virginia tech shooting. they will be asked to make recommendations on safety at schools, mental health, and gun violence prevention. the group was created a month ago by connecticut governor dan malloy. >>> it is up to the senate to decide whether congress should table the debate over raising the debt limit until spring. the house passed a bill yesterday that allows the government to continue borrowing money to pay bills without approval from congress through the middle of may. the white house supports the measure. some democrats oppose it. they say it prolong uncertainty about our economy's health. the senate could vote as soon as tomorrow. >>> this morning, investigators are trying to figure out what caused a fire that forced a family of nine out of their townhouse in prince george's county. the fire broke out last night on empress way
because it was in the senate version of sandy and it was not put in to the senate -- the house version of sandy. so no, we cannot -- we cannot move money we already have to address the needs and deficiencies that the arb has recommends we do. >> well, i would just echo the comments that have been made already by this committee and by you that this is action that we need to get moving on immediately because we still have people at risk around the world. we need to take the action that's going to ensure their security. so i would certainly urge the chairman and ranking member to move the committee to do everything we can to make this happen. and i want to go back to something that the secretary sni said because i asked about the cooperation between the department of defense and state. and what the situation was on the ground before the benghazi attack in terms of the placement of our military in the region. he talked about the unprecedented cooperation between state and defense in response to benghazi. but i wonder if you could talk about how we ensure that this is a standard way of doin
the shooting at sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut proves there is a need to ban assault weapons. >> newtown fundamentally changed things. >> reporter: but the nra says law-abiding citizens need the same technology the criminals have. >> that means we believe in our right to defend ourselves and our families with semi- automatic firearms technology. >> reporter: the nra has a lot of support here on capitol hill especially in the house where many say an assault weapons ban has little chance of being passed. >> this is going to be a tough go. >> reporter: and it may be tough to win over some of the public, as well. on wednesday, sheriffs in missouri, california and texas announced they would not enforce new gun control laws such as an assault weapons ban. >> if there are laws passed that i feel and can prove that are unconstitutional, we will not enforce those rules and i think i have the powers to do that. >> reporter: president obama is sending vice president biden on the road to gather public support. >> we are going to take it to th
is introducing it now in the wake of the sandy hook tragedy. most republicans and some democrats argue that an assault weapons ban is ineffective, that it doesn't do much to reduce gun violence, doesn't do much to deal with the real problem of mental illness and violates the second amendment. but the democrats by and large contend that studies show that the assault weapons ban did work when it was in place and that they plan to deal with things like mental illness and strengthening background checks in future legislation. nancy cortes, cbs news, capitol hill. >>> well also on capitol hill, the debt debate -- debt ceiling crisis rather appears to have been averted, at least for now. a bill suspending the debt limit is headed to the senate. the house passed the measure yesterday. it allows the treasury to exceed its borrowing limit through may 18th and the president says he'll sign the legislation. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton returns to capitol hill today. she'll introduce senator john kerry tapped to take her place at his confirmation hearing. yesterday c
of hurricane sandy. many people left with just a structure around them, no heat, just the studs where the walls once were. like the home where nbc's katy tur is visiting tonight, staten island in new york. good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. outside the real-feel temperature is about 6 degrees. inside, where people are living, it's about 32 degrees. it got so cold in here last night, these water bottles on the wall actually froze. and this home has heat. >> up. >> reporter: scott and dee mcgrath's whole life has been moved into one small bedroom. >> this is my dining room -- >> living room. >> living room -- >> bedroom -- >> bedroom and computer room. everything all in one. >> reporter: thermostat set to 90, actually temperature 65. downstairs, though, it's a whole other ball game. >> as you can see, we have a lot of exposed walls. >> there's a lot of people living like this. just because we have heat and electric back on doesn't mean we're actually staying warm. >> 39. >> 39 degrees. >> reporter: the mcgraths have been living this way for three months. in november, they pleaded for
this other story, there's been a lot of discussion about guns in schools, and guns in general after the sandy hook sad situation in december in connecticut. and now there's a kindergarten girl who apparently owns one of these little devices, you look at the screen at hello kitty bubble gun. apparently, she was talking about this toy at school. it's my understanding she actually didn't even have the toy with her at the mt. carmel area school in pennsylvania. as a result of just talking about shooting bubbles at one another, apparently she received a ten-day suspension. it was reduced to two days, but that's kind of unclear now whether or not she should even have faced any kind of suspensi suspension. >> steve: well, this is kind of crazy the two five-year-old girls were waiting at the bus, hey, i'm going to shoot you with my hello kitty bubble machine and somebody overheard it and next thing you know, just because people are, you know, freaked out about guns since sandy hook, the school got involved. and she was suspended for ten days, and then reduced it to two. but she was also given, becaus
and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him. he pulled the proposal because conservative republicans said the bill was loaded with pork with projects not related to the storm and they should've gone through the normal appropriations process. a couple days later, he narrowly hung onto his speakership as 10 republicans did not vote for him. now -- and right after that, they ended up passing a hurricane sandy bill. even that only received 49 republican votes. all that as a backdrop, house leaders last week went to williamsburg to figure out the task force on the debt ceiling on the across-the-board spending cuts known as the sequester, coming up. also, at the end of march, we have the continuing resolution, because the senate has not passed a full budget and the two chamber is not agree to a budget, but they have been working off a continuing resolution which funds the government for certain amount of time. it will end on march 27. house leaders tried to put
had a derailment because of it. we had record fires. we had record levels of damage from sandy, $70 billion. if we can't see the downside of spending that money and risking lives for all the changes that are taking place, to agriculture, to our communities, the ocean and so forth, we are ignoring what science is telling us. i will be a passionate advocate on this not based on ideology but based on facts and science. and i hope to sit with all of you and convince you that this $6 trillion market is worth millions of american jobs and we better go after it. >> to my good friend senator barrasso, wyoming is a producer state, new mexico is also a producer state and i found the same experience that senator kerry has talked about in massachusetts, in new mexico, the fastest growing sector these renewable jobs. so i think it's a big opportunity for us. we should be pursuing it. i agree with what he just said and i hope we can work with each other, because we should try to pull together and discuss the facts and really pursue this sector that is going to be so vital to the future and vital
of these latest, you know, incidents up at sandy hook, et cetera. they want something done, they don't want this one to pass without something happening. and what is the something? is it an assault weapons ban? is it universal background checks? but i do think there is an overreaction to the president's 23 executive orders. they really weren't much -- things like, you know, ordering studies into what causes gun violence. i mean these weren't like, you know, massive grabs for power. i think this rhetoric is sort of over done. jon: the president generally does frame his battles. he cast his opponents as the republicans in congress, when it's fair to say that he's got an awful lot of democratic opposition to some of these proposals as well. >> that's true. what is happening here is this goes back to individual district, and, look, the country may be wanting more control, or some action to make guns safer, but it's different by district. in inner cities whether you're a democrat or republican gun control is much more popular. you get out in the more rural states, more rural areas and there are
